This is a simple comparison of SOHO/LASCO/C3 difference images (left side) combined with radio data from Wind/WAVES (right side). The LASCO difference images are produced from a time series of images by subtracting the previous image from the current image. Moving material therefore appears white on the leading edge and dark behind it. The WAVES spectrograph shows the variation of radio intensity (black is low, violet is high) in frequency (vertical axis) and time(horizontal axis). A vertical...

The Long Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI) on New Horizons captured another dramatic picture of Jupiter's moon Io and its volcanic plumes, 19 hours after the spacecraft's closest approach to Jupiter on Feb. 28, 2007. LORRI took this 75 millisecond exposure at 0035 Universal Time on March 1, 2007, when Io was 2.3 million kilometers (1.4 million miles) from the spacecraft. Io's dayside is deliberately overexposed to bring out faint details in the plumes and on the moon's night side. The...

Jakobshavn Isbrae is located on the west coast of Greenland at Latitude 69 N. The ice front, where the glacier calves into the sea, receded more than 40 km between 1850 and 2006. Between 1850 and 1964 the ice front retreated at a steady rate of about 0.3 km/yr, after which it occupied approximately the same location until 2001, when the ice front began to recede again, but far more rapidly at about 3 km/yr. As more ice moves from glaciers on land into the ocean, it causes a rise in sea level....

Hubble was used to resolve stars within the galaxy to do a census of various classes of stars distributed across the galaxy.

This is evidence of "infant mortality" in which the young, so-called open clusters where stars are born, quickly became gravitationally...

First Map of Subsurface Flows in the Sun's Convection Zone This map provides the first view of an important part of the Sun's interior, the region call the convection zone. The convection zone lies directly beneath the photosphere, which forms the Sun's visible surface and effectively hides what is below. As a result, very little is known about the convection zone's internal structure, despite the fact that it is the source of sunspots, solar flares and most other forms of solar activity that...

Since measurements of Jakobshavn Isbrae were first taken in 1850, the glacier has gradually receded, finally coming to rest at a certain point for the past 5 decades. However, from 1997 to 2006, the glacier has begun to recede again, this time almost doubling in speed. The finding is important for many reasons. As more ice moves from glaciers on land into the ocean, ocean sea levels raise. Jakobshavn Isbrae is Greenland's largest outlet glacier, draining 6.5 percent of Greenland's ice sheet...

In 2007, Arctic summer sea ice reached its lowest extent on record - nearly 25% less than the previous low set in 2005. At the end of each summer, the sea ice cover reaches its minimum extent and what is left is what is called the perennial ice cover which consists mainly of thick multi-year ice floes. The area of the perennial ice has been steadily decreasing since the satellite record began in 1979, at a rate of about 10% per decade. But the 2007 minimum, reached on September 14, is far below...

By monitoring the color of reflected light via satellite, scientists can determine how successfully plant life is photosynthesizing. A measurement of photosynthesis is essentially a measurement of successful growth, and growth means successful use of ambient carbon.

NASA's TRMM spacecraft observed this view of Hurricane Dean on August 21, 2007. At this time the storm was classified as a category two with sustained winds of 90 knots (103.7 mph). The cloud cover is taken by TRMM's Visible and Infrared Scanner (VIRS) and the GOES spacecraft. The rain structure is taken by TRMM's Tropical Microwave Imager (TMI) and TRMM's Precitation Radar (PR) instruments. TRMM looks underneath of the storm's clouds to reveal the underlying rain structure. Gray represents...

The complex distribution and mixing of magnetic polarities (here displayed as yellow and blue) form a "magnetic carpet" over the entire Sun (upper right panel). The upper left panel shows the EUV emission taken simultaneously by CDS from plasma at the temperature of 250 000 K. The lower panel shows an overlay of the two images. Sequences of such images show that many of the transition region brightenings correspond to changes in the magnetic field.

A rapidly expanding "solar quake" on the Sun's surface depicted here by the Michelson Doppler Imager (MDI). It immediately followed a solar flare on 1996 July 6 and spread out more than 100,000 km at the solar surface. Scientists have shown that solar flares produce seismic waves, and gigantic seismic quakes, in the Sun's interior. They have tracked these seismic waves and found that "sun-quakes" closely resemble earthquakes on our planet.

A bright and expansive coronal mass ejection (CME) unfurled itself on January 24, 2007. As seen in SOHO's LASCO C2 coronagraph, the bright front emerged in the shape of an arc from behind the occulting disk but soon expanded into a ragged, bulbous shape with lots of structural lines inside it. The source of this CME was an active region that had just began to rotate into view the next day. An EIT 304 Angstrom image of the Sun taken at nearly the same time was enlarged and superimposed on the...

Using STEREO (Ahead) spacecraft's highest resolution frames (2048àö__2048 pixels per frame), we can zoom in a lot on areas of interest and still maintain good visual acuity. Over 34 hours (June 29-30, 2007), we zoom in on a pair of active regions and observe numerous instances of flaring activity, especially from the lead one of the two. These were low intensity flares. With frames taken every 10 minutes (and paced here at six frames a second), the motion is not jumpy or freeze-framed. It...

STEREO captured three differently shaped CMEs (coronal mass ejections) blasting out from the Sun over a three-day span (November 14-17, 2007). The COR2 (ahead) coronagraph, taking an image very 20 minutes, lets us generate a smooth motion movie of these events. The first CME billowed out as a doughnut-shaped CME to the lower right. The second one, late on Nov. 15, was a much more diffuse, "halo" CME that seemed to create a faint halo around the Sun as it expanded in all directions. In...

The main noteworthy feature on the Sun this past week is the one, dark, coronal hole that we watched as it rotated to the Sun's center over three days (June 17-19, 2007). Anyone who inspects the movie carefully will note that there were no looping arcs, no flares or solar storms, no filaments, and no bright active regions. Yes, the Sun remained largely featureless except for the coronal hole, and even that hole is not particularly large as these things go. We should note too that the north and...

A close up view of the top of the Sun as seen in profile shows thousands of little spurts, like small blow torches, shooting out all over the Sun. The movie shows just an average day's worth of this kind of activity as seen from the STEREO spacecraft (Ahead) in extreme ultraviolet light (August 3, 2007). These spurts are called spicules. With STEREO's 2048àö__2048 image resolution and an image every 10 minutes, we can zoom in on features like this with no distortion. Spicules are plasma jets...

LASCO C2 coronograph image in which a twisting, helical-shaped CME spins off from the Sun. This particular CME and erupting prominence is somewhat unusual in that the width of the blast is relatively narrow and the strands of plasma are twisting. The dark disk blocks the Sun so that the LASCO instrument can observe the structures of the corona in visible light. The white circle represents the size and position of the Sun.
